Ericsson recently extended its strategic partnership with Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) to transform the operator's 3G network and deploy 4G LTE technology.
The agreement enables CWC to continue delivering world-class mobile, data and voice consumer experiences to over six million Caribbean and Latin American subscribers throughout 42 countries. It includes the modernization of existing mobile radio access and core network infrastructure for all CWC's markets.
Under the agreement, Ericsson will deliver equipment and a range of professional services, including project management, systems integration and support. It also includes software updates that deliver new capabilities in radio access, network management and network control.
"Mobile broadband data is a key driver for economic growth in the Caribbean and Latin America," EVP Technology and Group CTIO at Cable & Wireless Communications Carlo Alloni said. "The launch of next-generation 4G LTE and 3G will ensure our customers continue to enjoy high-speed access on a superior network with unparalleled customer service."
According to the latest Ericsson Mobility Report, by 2020 86 percent of all mobile data traffic in the Caribbean and Latin America will come from smartphones, while 78 percent of data traffic in the region will be from LTE. In addition, mobile data traffic is expected to grow seven-fold in the region by 2020.
